Dr. Denny Dahl, D-Wave Systems
“Quantum computing with a D-Wave”

D-Wave Systems manufactures and sells the world’s first quantum computing system. During this talk, we will provide an overview of the company’s activities. We’ll describe the scientific and engineering challenges we are facing and the kinds of skills that we need to help us meet those challenges. The talk will include a demonstration in which we will pose and solve problems on an existing quantum computer.

“The iQuISE program represents a bold step forward to coalesce and cohere the education and research training that will produce a new generation of quantum information researchers for our nation.”
